How to install a graphical desktop on Fedora Server

We had some issues with getting a Graphical Desktop environment to work on a Fedora Server edition, in out case we needed it to test the Spotify rpms.

We resolved it as following:
Step 1: List all available groups to install.
$ yum group list

This command should show a big list of yum groups to install you can choose to install Cinnamon for example or something else, I simply choose to install the Fedora Workstation group.

Step 2: Install the Workstation group.
$ yum groupinstall "Fedora Workstation" --skip-broken

of-course if you want Cinnamon just change “Fedora Workstation” to “Cinnamon Desktop”.

Step 3: Change systemd to start graphical mode.
$ systemctl set-default graphical.target

And then reboot your server and it should work! Just remember that you are using a Fedora version optimized for being a server so expect some problems.
